@ Derdriu: thank you for visiting my page. Yes, they are great, I would try some of them. Maybe when I'll have children. I vote for the science kit and the virtual tour too. I could spend a couple of days with playing with them, though I'm not a child any more. :-)

Take care! :-)

Wow! thank you for this info I have a 6 year old son, who is a crazed fan of dinosaurs. I mean he can literally never get enough of books, toys, Pj's, T-shirts, stickers,and etc. so this was very insightful, being Christmas and his birthday are two weeks apart.
